Save The Date Etiquette
Save the Date cards are will get everyone excited about your upcoming wedding. You can get creative and start getting the feel of what kind of ambience you want your wedding to be. Casual, rustic, shabby chic or formal and grand. They are essential, and I recommend them, but don’t sweat if you are having an impromtu wedding and don’t have time to send them out. The wedding invitations are more important, of course.
Send out save the date cards between 6 to 12 months before your wedding date. Choose more time if you are planning a destination wedding to give your guests more time to prepare for travelling.
Save the Date wordings is direct and straight to the point. Nothing much to say but the couple’s names, date of wedding and the city where your wedding will be.
Don’t forget to send wedding invitations afterwards. It’s an absolute must to send a wedding invitation to the guest after sending out the save the date cards. Not sending it is unethical and will leave your guest thinking if they are still invited or not.
